• Dance program may be cut at MPC

    Walter White, Chair of the Dance Dept at Monterey Peninsula College, says the MPC Board of Trustees will be voting this Tues., March 8, at 4:00pm, at a Special Board Meeting held in the Sam Karas Room of the MPC Librarywhether to permanently close the Dance Dept. in an effort to meet mandated state budget cuts.

    Many feel dance classes play an important role in the artistic growth, creative development, and health and happiness of our community.

    Dance teacher Deanna Ross asks those who agree that the classes should not be cut to join her this Tuesday at 3:45pm outside of the MPC Library to participate with a united voice in the Special Board Meeting at 4:00pm. “Simply by attending you will be contributing to our physical presence, but if you want to make a public comment (of 3 minutes or less) you will have the opportunity to do so during the meeting,” she says.

    In addition, you can send an email voicing your concern at the prospect of losing our Dance Department to the MPC Board of Trustees, before Tuesday’s meeting, to: GoverningBoard@mpc.edu
